Important features to consider when buying a headset or lenses for Oculus Quest 2?
Before deciding on whether to get the Oculus Quest 2 lenses, we recommend first thinking through how you’ll actually use them and which features are important for you. There are many features the Rift has that may not be necessary when choosing your own style of the headset. There’s also the stand’s position and size, what gamepads can be plugged in, IPD and user focus, lenses quality ( haze), comfort, hands-free controls and much more to think about before deciding on your ultimate accessory decision – visit VR Headset Buying Guide.
Which does your budget allow for best in class performance?
The least expensive accessories available is made by a third-party manufacturer and begins at around $249. The Fujifilm camera model is just under that price point, but it only has two working hours per battery charge. The Samsung accessory model comes with sync the speaker so you can use the core version of your headset in group settings.
Which is easiest for compact carry and storage?
Smartphone covers are a popular choice. They provide the illusion of having an already-charged smartphone when carrying it in your pocket and they can also accommodate multiple case types, including those featuring magnetic or built-in locks. Perhaps you do not like carrying around your own phone case and you prefer a purse-friendly accessory. That’s where belt wraps come into play. These products are designed to have a magnet and hook that goes into loops sewn on your belt loop. If you plan on wearing one, make sure it fits belts from about 3 inches to 5 inches wide for maximum compatibility. Also, be sure that this accessory does not snag on your clothing materials!
How can I get a warranty when buying from a retailer?
When buying from an Oculus Quest 2 retailer it is important to know that your transaction and the service you get will be covered by the retailer’s warranty. Just contact the retailer before returning the Oculus Quest 2.
Should I go with 2 or 3 pack accessories to start with?
If you’re ultimately going to be using your Oculus in a professional or social environment, you should consider investing in two accessories for that reason. Professional or social purposes tend to be more mobile and thus, mobility is one of the most important qualities in choosing which pack of accessories you should buy.
The Oculus Quest 2 is a new and improved version of the first Oculus Quest. However, since your gaming needs are different when compared to the first, it might be helpful to consider your other options beyond the Oculus Quest 2.
